    Inappropriate title as the thread only talks of one player suspected. Even so, it's still inappropriate because he has neither been convicted nor does a conviction give any of us any licence to insult him.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    No this player hasnt been convicted...an we dont know who the player is.

    However I would beg to differ on whether I can offer an opinion on someone who has taken drugs if he is convicted...I might not use the words you may use, but we come from differing backgrounds.

    My personal thing on this is, I dont really care if this person has taken recreational drugs, a huge proportion of people do and I wouldnt make a judgment on them for that.

    However if any player was found to be taking performance enhancing drugs, then I feel I have the right to express an opinion on him...and in that case I would defend my right to use words which allude to him being the lowest of the low.

    So no names have been mentioned...I havent insulted anyone on here, or indeed the person who has been thrust into the spotlight (how can I insult him when I dont know who it is).

    The title I used was using language used to describe Warne when he had his bother...whats the difference in this situation

    all that said..I will happily change the title of the thread for fear of upsetting a) the more sensitive people here and b) Marc, who I beleive is a Warks fan.

    Only problem is..I dont know how to.

    The 'ignore' list can be your friend. I use it when things start getting tedious (like now) - not because I don't necessarily wish to read the contributions from certain members, but because I don't want to get into the habit of 'biting back'. The nonsense which has been bouncing back and forth is to the detriment of the overall site.

    Note that I'm not saying that people are not entitled to discuss matters, get involved in banter or even debates and arguments. It's the 14 or 15 consecutive posts or the single post with a dozen or more quotes which basically look, well, stupid - and this invariably is followed by another of the same from t'other side.

    I dont mind reading the stuff people are writing..its just I have very little now to add to a lot of what is being said now..most people know my opinions on these topics that have been going on for what seems like months now.

    Unfortunately it would appear the attitude which seems to override everything is he who has the last word has the right word...and so the whole thing continues around in a huge circle..without ever making any points whatsoever.

    It would appear that there are 3 people who have been mentioned in all this (Richard,TEC and Marc) and sometimes another two (me and Son Of Coco, who does appear to have similar views on the game as I do)....I personally think Richards main 'rival' is TEC..and Ithink he talks more sense than Richard..but I think maybe he should just let it go,I get the impression TEC is older than Richard, I would say use his maturity and get out of wasting his time banging his head against a wall

    Thats all I feel I do when I get into debates with Richard, thats why I have taken my foot off the gas on that one.

    Hey ho!!!
